know, here's governor john sununu, one of the surrogates for mitt romney who has said this kind of stuff before. here it is. >> i find it fascinating, now this morning after they've slept, to watch them all scrambling around to clean up the mess the president left on the floor last night. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> sam, what about that? >> i mean, what's to add? it's kind of absurd. it's obviously provocative. he wants to get a headline out of it. it's john sununu. there's not much to it. obviously obama's not lazy and disengaged. >> he left a lot of facts on the side of the road last night. the people sitting at home were screaming at their tv sets. we can't ignore that. >> you can disagree with what he's doing on these things whether foreign policy or domestic but he's not lazy or disengaged. we're overlooking the simple fact obama is not that good a debater. he wasn't that great a debater in the democratic primary. he did fine against john mccain but it wasn't acceptable. last night he clearly lost. one thing i'm hearing from democ

? is that all you got? john sununu accused of president obama of waiting too long to -- in an interview with "the new york times." >> waiting two terms of w? >> stephanie: obama was timid. could have gone after him sooner and attributeded to secretary of state hillary clinton. what? as you recall, even a former defense secretary robert gates who served with bush described obama's decision to order the raid as gutsy saying people don't realize what a tough call it was. he and vice president biden both advised obama against the raid because they didn't have 100% surety he was there. so i don't know what you're talking about john sununu but nice try. [ applause ] >> he's the worst surrogate ever! >> stephanie: 29 minutes after the hour. it's still monday. even though it's not his usual time but it is time for rudeness. rude pundit joins us next on "the stephanie miller show." (vo) what is said here could decide the election. current tv presents coverage of the presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you'

that is not enough. >> stephanie: oh, okay. because john sununu said he is lazy and stupid. romney walked back his own tax plan telling president obama and the american people he would not support a plan that cut taxes on the wealthy and raise taxes on the middle class -- that is mathematically impossible. as i read the actual -- like thing romney said, he basically just said huh-uh because i say so. >> wow. >> stephanie: he said so there's no economist that says the plan adds $5 trillion if i say it won't. [ applause ] >> stephanie: all right. wow. okay. so and as i was always saying i thought axelrod said it right. he said the strategy was effective in the short-term vulnerable in the long term. romney gave a good performance, the problem is none of it was rooted in fact. he told the debate medicare is -- mr. etch-a-sketch said that was wrong. the romney camp had to send someone in the spin room right after the debate to say, well he can't really do that. as for taxed obama appeared to be caught off guard by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney'
